, isn't it? >> yeah, bill, still got more questions than answers at this point and today the ntsb fang out around the country and the globe trying to get more answers. in tucson, arizona, ntsb along with members of boeing were down at a company called secure a plane. owned by its corporate plane out of london. they make chaernlgs for the lithium batteries down there doing some tests. the ntsb with boeing investigators out in everett, washington, where they make the dreamliner. they have hundreds of employees at boeing in everett working on the 878 problem, and they are in teams trying to do what you would want to do here, do a test. try to figure out if there's some common theme here. and finally in japan, japanese investigators, along with investigators from the ntsb, they are looking at the battery from the ana dreamliner, the ntsb said that battery was ore charged, different than what was said about boston taking a look at boeing since the incident on boston on january 7th. still more questions than dreamliners. >> you know the ceo of the company has to be saying what's next? >> so
of events a few years ago prompted the ntsb to focus on medical helicopters specifically and medical planes. the pressure to quickly respond in various conditions at night, in foul weather, they make those operations inherently dangerous. the safety board made 19 recommendations, including better pilot training, especially for inclement weather, nine vision systems, flight data recorders with regular reviews of the data. both aircraft yesterday were just a few years old each and we know that the pilot in the fatal crash in iowa did have access to height vision goggles and newer technology but did not have a flight data recorder, wolf. >> what do we know about the companies that operated these hol copterses? >> these were two large nationwide air medical operations. the first one, air methods corporation, that's the one involved in the oklahoma crash yesterday, that has some 300 aircraft. the company involved in the iowa crash, medtran, has about 60. we've reached out to both companies but have not heard back yet. the ffa and ntsb are investigating both of these incidents. the one involved i
to get to it on boeing. phil, over to you. >> we've heard from the ntsb, expecting an update from them. they have at least an initial report regarding the fire investigation of that 77 dreamliner in boston yesterday. the ntsb saying that they have decided they are going to send two more investigators to look at the dreamliner in question and that at least initially taking a look at the fire in question they found severe fire damage to the battery of the auxiliary power unit. remember, the auxiliary power unit is what is used to provide power to an airplane when it is parked on the tarmac, not while it's in flight so the battery unit, severe fire kagge there, and it's pretty clear, scott and maria, that we are going to see more airlines, if they haven't already, they are going to start checking their wiring on the battery unit. i just spoke with the folks out of ana in japan. they have a number of dreamliners, checked theirs overnight at the urging of the ministry of transportation in j.i just talked with united airlines. it has checked the battery power wiring on all of its dreamliners
to arrive there today to assess the situation. >>> the ntsb is in new york this morning, investigating a ferry accident, which seriously injured 11 people. the packed commuter ferry was coming in from new jersey when it slammed into a dock in lower manhattan. passengers were sent flying. the ferry had just undergone a major overhaul that gave it new engines and a new propulsion system. >>> the former penn state football coach jerry sandusky faces a new court hearing today. his lawyers want a new trial and will argue they didn't have enough time to prepare for the first one because prosecutors gave them a flood of material at the last minute. sandusky was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse last june. >>> and now, we turn to an inspiring story of generosity from south florida. airport worker patrick morgan was just doing his job when he found an ipad with $13,000 in cash tucked inside. now, being an honest guy, morgan reported his find to police. as a reward, the ipad's owner gave morgan 60 bucks. but the good deed does not end there. morgan, then, gave that money to a needy co
inspector with the ntsb arrived last night. they will be taking a close look at the taker, the bridge as well. back to you at the desk. >> thank you, brian. >>> a san francisco man accused of setting his girlfriend on fire may make his first court appearance today. police arrested 22-year-old dexter oliver, monday night at an oakland hotel. investigators say oliver poured gasoline on his girlfriend, starr lamare, then set her on fire on sunday. she is still in the hospital. she's being treated for serious burns on her neck, her chest and her face. >>> in san jose, an investigation goes on into a garage fire last month that destroyed several cars and a boat. it all happened on 15th street. firefighters say when they got there, huge flames were shooting into the air. the fire destroyed a corvette that was inside the garage along with two other cars and a boat that were parked outside. a house next door was also damaged. firefighters say the first reports of a possible meth lab turned out to be not true. >>> 7:31. the family of bryan stow is giving us an update on his medical condition.
is on the scene for us. alison, how did this happen? >> that's what crime scene investigators and ntsb are trying to figure out. there's going to be a press conference in minutes given by the ntsb. everyone is trying to figure out how this ferry carrying 300 passengers crashed into the dock in new york be city around 8:45's this morning. not only did it send passengers flying in the air inside this boat, it's caused a huge gash in the hull of the boat itself. the coast guard says a tracking device shows that this vessel was coming in too fast, that it was coming in up to 15 miles per hour, which the coast guard official says is too fast when you're docking a boat. we did talk with the head of the company who says that the captain who was at the control of this vessel was in control or in command of this vessel when it did crash hitting one loading dock and then hitting a second loading dock. this captain, by the way, has been with this company for about ten years. a breathalyzer was performed on the captain. it came back negative and preliminary breathalyzers were conducted on five crew members a
't know right now. so i know they're saying that. but we have the faa all over the airplane, the ntsb all over the airplane. i think the risk for the -- i see two camps on this stock. you have the teethers, those who believe everything is a teether problem, and the tip of the icebergers saying could this be something else. i think with this investigation going on and the faa already actively on the airplane, it will be difficult to take event, especially if it's a severe event, and say, this is fine, this is fine. long term they're going to sort it out. i agree with what jim cramer said, i'm in the same camp that said, why not do a derivative play on this story, if you have more risk maybe someone like spirit aero systems. >> at what point do you say this is the point of fear of investors are running? that's the time to get in the stock. we've seen that in different scenarios, that we don't know what we don't know, as you said. that is exactly the time you wanted to go in. what's going to make that turning point for you, do you think? >> well, i have to say, because there's a formal inves
in the news, a lot of people saying are there others out there. the ntsb yesterday gave an update in terms of where the investigation stands, including showing the media what's going on in the ntsb lab, seeing the charred batteries from the 787 dreamliner that was the one that had to be put out in boston. well, now they still say they do not know the exact cause of the batteries catching fire. as for those batteries and one other component, the charger, the charger for the batteries built by a company called secureaplane, a plant out in tucson, arizona. back in 2006, there was a fire involving lithium ion batteries for the 787 at the secureaplane plant. a worker there warned the company about the batteries and the chargers and the possibility of fires. >> these lithium ion batteries, too much heat and they'll explode. it will be a nightmare. >> michael leon was dismissed from the company for repeated problems on the job. secureaplane told me yesterday the battery charger for the dreamliner was successfully tested. there was a fire in the facility in 2006 during one test. however, the curre
of them seemingly quite serious, like the fuel leak, will be giving cause for concern. that's why the ntsb here in the united states is looking at worthiness, at what happened, and is certainly not going to be taking this very lightly. these were two serious incidents that happened. >> and what is so special, what is so revolutionary about these planes? >> the way it is built. no aluminum, carbon fibers, composite, the plane is lighter. it has new engines. it has bigger windows. it has new avionics, everything about what the plane is made from and the way it is made. boeing has subcontracted large parts of the manufacturer to different companies, particularly japan and elsewhere. the parts are flown into the united states where they're assembled in the carolinas and out in washington state. so the totality of the plane is a revolution for boeing, in how it is made, what it is made, and that's why perhaps there are these problems. but, here is the important thing to bear in mind, would i get on a dreamliner tonight? across the ocean, yes. no question about it. >> i was going to ask you, you
has grounded the planes, listen to the ntsb's chairman who talks about how serious this incident now is. >> this is an unprecedented event. we are very concerned. as i mentioned in the beginning, we do not expect to see fire events onboard aircraft. this is a very serious air safety concern the faa has taken very serious action. >> reporter: and that, of course, feeds into how detailed and difficult it is going to be to actually put this problem right. they just don't know. >> richard, what are people saying there? do they think the dreamliner will be able to survive? >> reporter: i talked to one senior aviation official, international aviation official here. i asked exactly that question. yes is the short answer because we've seen it with the dc 10 and concord and other cases. what they have to do is find out what's wrong and put it right. the difficulty is the time and the expense in doing it. if it was a mature aircraft, that would be even a greater question. since it's a brand new plane with 800 orders still or 750 still to be delivered, there's no question that boeing is going t
's batteries in ten days have left the faa with no choice but to ground the dreamliner, while the ntsb analyzes the charred evidence from last week's 787 fire. lithium batteries are smaller and more powerful, but can overheat. >> when they're used normally, and the energy is released slowly, as it's supposed to, batteries have a very good safety record. but if that same energy is released very rapidly, the battery cells will vent, release their contents, and have the potential both for fire and explosion. >> reporter: boeing needed special faa approval to allow the dreamliner to use lithium batteries for key electrical systems. >> they have narrowed it down to the battery system on this aircraft. we've had two events, and so, therefore, they're going to now be able to look at it a little bit more in detail and figure out what's going on. >> boeing's european archrival, airbus, uses lithium batteries only for emergency lighting in their air-380. but airbus' plane of the future, the air-350, due out by the end of next year, relies on them more heavily. the company says there are no plans to chang
